I'm trying to merge an animation which includes PLA and a spline warp into another animation. When I try and scale the first - within the second- it becomes evident that the world origin in the first is in the wrong place.

I've tried all sorts of ways with nulls etc to correct this without success. Is there a way of re-positioning the world origin of the first without upsetting the PLA or spline warp?

Many thanks

Alan

The quickest way to fix it would be to place the animated objects in a null and then offset the null so that the animation takes place where you want it.

For individual objects you can use the animation tool to move/scale/rotate an object with its animation path.

Thanks for the response Adam, and I'll certainly try again, but I'm sure that's the first thing I tried, only to find out that the spline, on which the spine warp was placed, was offset from the axis, and it was this offset that I couldn't negate when inserted, positioned and scaled in the second animation.

I've since remodeled the source so solved it that way, but being able to reposition the original world origin would have saved me a day!

Cheers Alan
